RESTORE2 is a physical deterioration and escalation tool for care homes, people who live in supported living and supporting people who live in their own homes. It’s based on nationally recognised methodologies.

Ƶ, funded by NHS England, have revised the existing training and guidance for the RESTORE2 Mini to make it more accessible for social care.

RESTORE2 Mini for carers tools and training slides

The RESTORE2 Mini for carers tool is intended to be used by carers, where the care and support is being undertaken by a paid or unpaid carer, a care worker, a personal assistant or support worker.

The training slides include a background on the ‘soft signs’ of deterioration, and what we mean by ‘deterioration’; including the benefits of using deterioration tools, the importance of understanding when someone becomes unwell, what factors could ensure the best outcome, annual health checks, spotting signs of cancer and what to do in a medical emergency.

The RESTORE2 Mini for carers tool helps you to find out if the person you’re supporting is feeling unwell. SBARD is a way of communicating when someone is unwell, especially with medical professionals.
